CII names Aston Lark’s Blanc 2022 president

The Chartered Insurance Institute has appointed Aston Lark CEO, Peter Blanc, as president for 2022.

Mr Blanc leads one of the largest chartered insurance brokers in the UK with more than 1,500 staff across 53 locations in the UK and Ireland. He is also non-executive chairman of Hastings Insurance Services Ltd, the broker arm of Hastings Direct, and up until recently served as chairman of the Large Brokers’ Advisory Board at the British Insurance Brokers Insurance Association.

In the coming months he will work with current CII president and CEO of Aon UK, Julie Page, before taking over as president and chair of the President’s Forum on 1st January 2022.

Mr Blanc said: “The pandemic has shone a light on how important it is to have insurance solutions that can keep businesses going, so I look forward to becoming President of the CII in 2022 and continuing the professional body’s amazing work to examine ways to close the gap between what consumers expect insurance services to entail and the reality.

“As a profession it is vital that we get to grips with the cause of the expectation gap and how to better educate consumers around coverage. Having cover in place is essential if our customers are to do and achieve more in the years to come.”
